Summer is here! Let's welcome the sizzlin' summer days with our third autocross of the season - Summer Sizzle Autocross. We will have plenty of ice cold water to keep you hydrated during the day. At the end of the day we will have plenty of ice cold adult beverages and sodas to enjoy as we boast about our day, or make excuses for our mishaps. Come and join us for a day of fun in the sun.

We will be collecting money for the Food Bank of the Rockies during this event. The Food Bank of the Rockies provided an average of 181,500 meals per day to those experiencing food insecurity. Let's help them meet this tremendous need. Please donate either online or at the event.

By the way, autocross is a huge social event and a great time to meet new club members and visit with friends.

Brand new: Satisfaction guarantee for first timers! If you are thinking about trying out an autocross, but not sure if you'll enjoy it, you can now sign up without fear of "wasting" money! How it works: Sign up for the event, we're very welcoming to newcomers and will help you along the way. After the event, if you decide it's not for you, let us know. No hard feelings, we'll refund your money. Note: applies to RMR members only.

If you can volunteer to assist the chair in setting up the course and other activities to make this a successful event please contact us!

New for the 2023 PCA RMR autocross season - Class Championships! For bragging rights (and maybe some neat swag) at the year-end party we will be recognizing a class champion for each of the CS, C1, C2, C3, C4, and C5 autocross classes.

Autocross Season Scoring and Rules

  • Your scored points for an event are calculated by giving the driver with fastest time for a class 1000 points. Each successive driver in the same class gets a percentage of 1000 points based on the formula (Drivers Time / Fastest Class Time) x 1000..
  • Only the fastest runs of the day are scored.
  • You must score points in at least 3 events per season in a single car in a single class to qualify for the season championship.
  • You can compete in more than one class, but you can only qualify for season championship points in one class.
  • If an event gets cancelled, the minimum number of events to qualify (3) will stay the same.
  • Points cannot be transferred to a different class.
  • Class standings are determined by the points total from each driver's 3 best events.
  • In the event of a tie in point totals, the season average score (average of the driver's best 3 events) will be used to determine the season championship. If there is a tie in the season average scores as well, then the championship will be determined by the highest average score from the best 4 events.
